Schools – Get Involved in The Big Month of Music
Arts Connect are delighted to support West Midlands Music, a collective of 14 regional music services with a shared commitment to ensuring high quality, progressive and ongoing music education for all children.
In March 2020 they will be embarking on a unique and ambitious collective project called Big Month of Music, celebrating the musical achievements of children across the entire region and investing in their musical learning in the long-term.
There’s already lots planned, including: The Big Sing at Symphony Hall involving children from all 14 regions in a professional-standard singing event; The Big Play encouraging First Access pupils to showcase their progress by taking up the One Minute of Music challenge which will be shared online. They’ll also be shining a light on rock, pop and other youth ensembles; highlighting gigs and concerts; and hosting open events for families where children can try out instruments and find out what their next musical steps might be.
Being part of the Big Month of Music will give your school a chance to benefit from involvement in a large-scale, region-wide event. It will help raise your profile, evidence participation in wider cultural activities and demonstrate to your school community the breadth of opportunity in your arts offer. Your local music service will be in touch about how you can involved shortly. In the meantime watch this space and follow them on social media for updates on Big Month of Music
